Biblical Community

 

WHY BIBLICAL COMMUNITY?

Human beings were created for relationship – both with God and with one another. Unfortunately, when mankind fell into sin, relationship was broken. The good news is that Jesus, through his death and resurrection, makes it possible for relationship with God to be restored. Jesus also makes it possible for us to experience reconciled relationships with one another. To see more about what the bible says about this, read Ephesians 2:11-22.

In our digital, online age, people exist apart from meaningful community and relationships maybe more than ever before. But isolation is not good for anyone, and God’s design is for people to live their lives alongside others. For the follower of Jesus, community is not an option.

So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,
— Ephesians 2:19
